Spring Candy Treat Boxes

Spring is here and the store shelves are lined with beautiful pastel colored treats.  Create these fun candy holders so you share those delightful sweets and spring colors with your family and friends.  They make it easy to share several or take to take a few on the go which makes them perfect for putting on your desk or in a lunch.

1

Begin by cutting the paper for the candy tubes.  They can be created from your favorite patterned paper or different colors of cardstockSN@P!  Color Vibe by Simple Stories is shown here.  Each piece should measure 4 ¼” x 5 ½”.

2

Add a line of glue down the long side of the paper.  You can, also, use double sided tape for this project.  Form the paper into a tube and allow it to dry if using glue.

3

Add a line of glue or piece of double sided tape to the end of the tube and press it closed.

4

Now run the glued end part way through a paper crimper.  Remember that you only want to go approximately ¾” in at most so you will have an open space for the candy in the middle of the tube.

5

Fill the tubes with your favorite candy and add another line of glue or double sided tape to the end.  This time pinch it closed in the opposite direction as shown in the picture and then crimp the end.

Create as many tubes as you will need to share.

6

Create the basket by cutting a piece of green cardstock using a paper trimmer in the length and width you would like.  This one was cut to measure 2 ½” tall and 12” long.

Add the fringe by using a fringe punch or fringe scissors.  This is the Fringe Punch by Little B shown in this picture.

8

Add a line of tape along one edge of the basket just under the fringe and attach the edge to the opposing edge.

9

This is what it will look like at this point.

10

For the bottom of the basket, cut a circle using a circle cutter and glass mat.  This basket was 3 ¾” so I cut a 3 3/8” circle.  You will want it to be a little larger than the bottom of your basket so that you can adhere them together.

11

Add a small line of glue around the bottom edge and place the circle on top of it.  Allow it to dry completely.

12

Decorate the tubes and the basket with your favorite punches and dies.  The rabbits and eggs were created using the Mini Bunny and Egg set by EK.

Create fun treat boxes for Easter Baskets and more!

For a different look, fill the tubes with candy and place them inside the basket for a quick grab of a special treat.

Don’t let these fun candy holder ideas stop when spring ends.  Create them using your favorite papers for Halloween and Christmas, too!  No matter what the holiday or celebration is, these treat holders hold a lot of fun and surprises.

About Peg

Peg Rounds lives in East Moline, Illinois with her husband and best friend, Kevin and their son Josh and 2 dogs. She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today! Check out Peg's blog, Peg's Crafting Corner to see what else she has been up to!
